Physical Texan Defensive Back Braylen Prude Commits to Nebraska After Official Visit

June 18, 2023

Nebraska gained its tenth commitment in the 2024 recruiting class with hybrid defender Braylen Prude, a soon-to-be senior at Shadow Creek High in Pearland, Texas.

Prude stood out to secondary coach Evan Cooper at the satellite camp in Belton, Texas, earlier this month and received an offer from Nebraska. He came to Lincoln for an official visit over the weekend and committed on Sunday. His only other offers thus far are from Eastern Illinois and Lane College. He previously played at Fort Bend Hightower in Missouri City, Texas.

Prude plays linebacker and safety at Shadow Creek. His size (6-foot-5, 190 pounds) coupled with his speed (4.47 in the 40) provide an exciting blueprint for development. Prude also shows a nose for the ball and ability to shake blocks on the perimeter.

He’s the son of former LSU cornerback Ronnie Prude. The older Prude played a handful of seasons in the NFL after going undrafted and tallied 114 tackles and three interceptions in 52 games.

Nebraska is now up to 10 commitments in mid-June. Prude’s decision makes him the fifth member of the class from Texas behind Gibson Pyle, Ian Flynt, Roger Gradney and Mario Buford. He’s also the third commitment since June started, along with Buford and kicker/punter Kamdyn Koch.
